John ‘Preacher’ Middleton (performed by Colin Lawrence) spent quite a lot of time taking care of newcomer Christopher (Chase Petriw) within the divisive third season of Virgin River. This yr’s instalment of the favored romantic drama on Netflix provoked some sturdy reactions to this unlikely pairing, and a few followers have identified some obvious points with their relationship.
The third season of Virgin River has acquired appreciable criticism because the smalltown romance returned in July this yr.
Now, followers have extra motive to complain as one of many newest instalment’s most distinguished storylines has come beneath scrutiny.
On the finish of season two, single mom Paige Lassiter (Lexa Doig) fled city after killing her abusive ex-husband, Wes (Steve Bacic).
This left Preacher accountable for her son Christopher, who begged to stick with him after his mom skipped city.
Though the ex-marine clearly cares for the younger boy, followers discovered he made some extremely reckless choices which may have put Christopher at risk.
Maybe essentially the most egregious instance got here in episode six of the brand new season, ‘Jack and Jill’.
Regardless of promising his mom he would handle his son, Preacher manages to go away Christopher unattended at a big public competition.
He panics, and shortly enlists the assistance of Jack (Martin Henderson) and Mel (Alexandra Breckenridge) to assist him look.
On Reddit, a number of viewers levelled a number of complaints in the direction of the route of Preacher’s storyline now Paige isn’t within the image.
One annoyed consumer posted: “Sorry, however is anybody else getting fed up with the entire Preacher/Christopher factor?
“I do know Christopher goes by quite a bit, however may they make the child barely extra tolerable?”
Apart from criticisms in the direction of younger star Chase Petriw’s appearing chops, the viewers raised a lot of honest factors in regards to the premise behind their rising father-son bond.
One other fan stated: “Your complete idea that that girl would depart her son with digital strangers is totally far-fetched so I’m simply taking it in stride at this level.”
“Agree; it is senseless,” replied a 3rd. “If she needed to get away she would take him with her.”
Hopefully Paige can return in season 4 and alleviate a few of these complaints, in any other case Virgin River may discover itself with dwindling viewing figures as soon as the following season rolls round.
Virgin River seasons 1-Three can be found to stream on Netflix.
